How can I help my child with instructions for home learning?
Teachers spend time explaining home learning to their class before it is sent home. It is important that children develop independence in listening to instructions and completing their learning.
At home you can support your child by asking them to think back to the learning that took place in the classroom. Ask if there were any visual supports in the classroom which they can think about to help them.
If a child is unable to complete their home learning, you can encourage them to let the teacher or teaching assistant know as soon as possible. An adult can then provide extra explanations or help the child to get started.
